tags with sentiments

after my recent sell-out performance at the sussex beacon [lol]
i needed to make a few more cards to replace all the ones sold
the design i used for these cards seemed very popular so why fix it if it aint broke.....

while reading my blog list a couple of days ago i read a really good idea from tammy tutterow to add a topper to a tag where the non embossed part is.
unfortunately i cant find that post, but this is my version [hers is far superior!!]
so thanks to tammy for the idea.

i just purchased some ink dusters from inkylicious and had a bash at colouring with them.  i love the blending you can easily achieve, using the summer distress colours.
i used the honeycomb texture fade with the diffuser on the first tag and the bookplate on the second one.  the sentiments are also from inkylicious which i embossed.
both tags were edged with aged copper frantage then mounted on a trimmed piece of kraft card [papermania kraftstax] which had some craft mesh and crumpled and inked paperartsy crackly tissue adhered to it.
i finished them off with some frantage powders and glued some glitters and mica flakes to both.
i wish i had more spare time to produce more cards ..... they sell so well and every penny counts!  i will try my hardest to make some more, even if i have to re-produce some of the ones i have previously made.

sorry about the appalling photography ... its not my forte.


  1. They are great Tony, no wonder they sold so well!! There is a lot of detail in each they must take time to make but so worthwhile.

  2. Tony why change a winning formula, although I love to see your new creations. Love the words on these cards and how you have put them together.

    Because of your post ref your charity work the other week I had a clear out of my crafting cupboards and took a massive bag of goodies along to a local community for adults that have learning difficulties who want to live independently. So thank you for the reminder that a little bit of good goes a long way.


thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
they are all most gratefully received.
i love to read them!!
